How MedicAlert can help you


We know that Addison's can be stressful and challenging

Addison’s disease, a rare disorder of the adrenal glands, affects approximately 1 in 10,000 people with an estimated 350 people being diagnosed each year across the UK. This makes it roughly 300 times rarer than diabetes1

Many living with Addison's will feel scared that an Addisonian crisis can happen at any time. It is important, however, to remain as active and independent as possible. MedicAlert provides the peace of mind that details about your hidden condition are available in an emergency, allowing you to live life to the full.

“I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have had the courage to do many things if I hadn’t been wearing my MedicAlert jewellery. I wear it all the time, I'm never without it.” - Charlotte Gee

How MedicAlert can help you

If you experience an Addisonian crisis, immediate intervention is needed without delay. Wearing a MedicAlert ID can save your life during an emergency.

Your ID jewellery ensures that emergency and healthcare professionals are alerted to your hidden condition. They can make quick and accurate first care decisions about the right treatment for you, adminster life-saving steroids and identify if you are carrying an emergency kit or have an individualised care plan.
